Congratulations on completing the 6th year of marriage! To celebrate, tradition says that you should gift your partner candy or iron. Interesting, right? I’m beginning to wonder who came up with this list of “traditional” anniversary gifts. This year was a little difficult to pull together because iron doesn’t exactly lend itself to a romantic selection of products. Nothing says ‘I love you’ like a wrought iron gate?! Nevertheless, I think I have a few appropriate ideas that will still surprise and delight your spouse.

Your spouse will love going through this basket filled with nostalgic candy from the 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s.
If your spouse likes to cook, cast iron cooking supplies like this French Oven or this Fondue Set are heavy-duty, quality tools.
Many time capsules are made out of steel, but according to Google iron and steel are basically made from the same elements so I’m going with it!
Fill a time capsule with photos, a letter to your spouse, newspaper clippings, etc. Plan to open the capsule on some milestone anniversary.
This is a no brainer if your hubby or wife is a fan of the sport.
If these types of items fit your taste and the style of your home, you can find some cool iron decorative pieces. These three items all happen to be from Nordstrom, but I would also suggest Restoration Hardware or your local flea market.
